The Sail at Victoria
Kennedy Town, Hong Kong

Occupying a hillside site overlooking the western mouth of Victoria Harbour, this 32-storey single tower development incorporates 95 high-end residential units, along with an infinity pool, clubhouse facilities and parking garage. WCWP developed a unique fin wall design to shield the residences from the noise of an adjacent government recycling transfer facility without compromising valuable sea views. The fins make reference to Hong Kong’s maritime history, with their subtle echo of the sails of junks and yachts whilst the expression of the gondola boom provides a fitting cap to the vertical form. All north-facing residences have panoramic harbour views towards Green Island and the Kowloon Peninsula, while smaller south-facing apartments enjoy tranquil green views of Mount Davis. The top five floors house spacious penthouses sheathed in full height glass curtain wall overlooking deep private terraces.

Sustainability was a key driver of this project, and the building eventually earned BEAM Platinum certification. A skygarden above the podium allows air to move through the site, improving the area’s microclimate, and natural ventilation, energy efficient lighting and appliances, and low-flow plumbing all contributed to a reduced carbon footprint.
